When your cruise ship docks at the Santorini port, you’ll be picked up by your guide for a boat trip to the active volcano of Thira. Follow your guide on a moderate walk to the top of the island and learn about the volcano’s 3,000-year history.
Hear about its last eruption in 1950 and discover the little-known fact that the archipelago of Santorini is the remnant of a volcanic caldera, meaning it was formed after an enormous volcanic explosion destroyed the formerly single island’s earliest settlements. As you walk, your guide will point out pieces of magma and fumes emitting from the crater.
Enjoy free time to take amazing panoramic photos before heading to some hot springs for a relaxing, reviving bath. These natural pools were created from volcanic activity and are said to have medicinal powers against skin and bone diseases.
At the end of you tour, you’ll be taken back to the Santorini port.
Worry-Free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to the Santorini port for your ship’s departure. In the extremely unlikely event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

I booked this as I thought it would be a really nice day out with my girlfriend. It was a nice day out but not worth the £395 I paid. For this money, I was expecting a private boat and a private tour guide. We...More
